TUC Brands Launches Capital Division Led by Stephan May
Aug 3, 2012, Ottawa, Ontario – TUC Brands, the parent company of national managed services provider (MSP) The Utility Company®, today announced the formation of a capital division to help fund its mergers and acquisition activity. The company also appointed Stephan May as Director of TUC Capital.
Prior to joining TUC Brands, Stephan worked at Walton Capital, one of North American’s leading real estate investment firms which raises $500M in capital annually. Previous to Walton, he held senior positions at AxesNetwork and Green Swan Capital.
Leveraging the success of its first raise, TUC I, which financed the acquisition of Nitro IT Business Solutions, the company has developed TUC II for accredited investors and TUC III for institutional investors, supported by senior debt financing.
“Stephan brings a wealth of experience and relationships to TUC. We are very pleased to have him onboard as TUC Capital is the catalyst in our role as MSP Aggregator going forward,” stated Mark Scott, CEO of TUC Brands. “The fact that the other two major aggregators, Mindshift and All Covered, have themselves been acquired over the past year speaks volumes about our market opportunity in the highly fragmented MSP space.”
TUC Brands is currently in the process of completing several acquisitions of regional MSPs in the $5M - $10M revenue range.
